Posted by Ethical Humanist Society in Philadelphia on October 17, 2016
Last Meals is a conceptual pop-up dinner combining human rights issues with communal dining. Food has long been a connecting force among diverse groups of people. Breaking bread naturally encourages camaraderie and familiarity; it is a fitting environment to discuss important topics such as Mass Incarceration. Last Meals is meant to inspire participants to think about their own mortality and ways in which to use the time they have to do the most good.
Conversations will be facilitated by professionals. politicians, and organizers all working towards ending Mass Incarceration, as well as Life without Parole Sentencing in Pennsylvania. Chef Claire Phelan will re-create the Last Meals of presumably innocent inmates. Last Meals is a creative collaboration between Cooking with Claire, the Black Capital Coalition, and the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.
